5th sentence, 74th page: Kat did indeed have Camelot as a best friend.
Kat Murphy is in love with her lawyer boss, Sam Parrish. Fearing his heart may never heal, she quits her job and heads for the beach. And when Sam follows, the sensual heat they generate is out of this world.
I was kind of expecting a tragedy or many things to go hilariously wrong in this story. After all, the name of it is Murphy’s Law. Yet, that’s not what I found. This was, undoubtedly kind of humorous and very cute. But mostly it was a story in which pretty much everything went right. After all, a woman quits her job and runs away to escape the man that she’s in love with. And in doing so, managed to find her happily ever after.
I’m absolutely fascinated to see what happens in the other two stories in this small series. I’m assuming that there’s another two stories since they discuss another two couples. I’ll actually be incredibly disappointed if this isn’t the case. The fact that all three couples are constituted by lawyers and their assistants is a little cliché, but it is kind of sweet. And wonderfully, enjoyably lustful in this novella.
I love that this novella is set against the backdrop of a beach retreat. It’s an incredibly fun and dreamy setting. I would love my own romantic interlude (with my partner) at a private little beach on a beautiful, sunny day. There is just something about such a setting which makes it a little more light-hearted and fun.
